INTRODUCTION 



This book, which is the genealogy of the descendants of only two 
of the Hitchcocks who early settled in this country, scarcely needs an 
introduction. The family seems to have been, and still is, a very 
numerous one in England, the " Wills and Administrations in the 
Prerogative Court of Canterbury " showing a list of 116 of this 
name between the years of 1590 and 1670. It would probably not 
be difficult to trace the ancestry back to England of the descendants 
of Thomas Hitchcock who at the age of 22 came to Virginia in the 
" Paule of London," or of the Thomas Hitchcock who with Alice 
his wife came to Virginia in the " Marygold " in 1624 and settled 
on Hog Island, or of the William Hitchcock who sailed in 
1635 in the " Plaine Joan" for Virginia. But Matthias, Luke 
and Edward came and left no trail behind them. Probably 
they were men in the humbler walks of life. All attempts 
have failed to discover any trace of them previous to May, 1635 when 
Matthias at the age of 25 landed in Boston and settled for a short 
time in Watertown, Mass., from which place he soon removed to 
East Haven, Conn., where our history of the family begins. There 
he was joined by Luke and Edward as early as July 1, 1644 at which 
date they both took " Freemans oath" in New Haven. Matthias 
and Edward remained in East Haven and in this and the towns in the 
neighborhood of New Haven the descendants of Matthias settled for 
several generations. About 1645 Luke removed to Wethersfield, 
Conn., dying there in 1659 after which date his children removed to 
Springfield, Mass. and in this neighborhood the records of the earlier 
generations of his descendants may be found. 

It may be of interest to state that the Hitchcock family is supposed 
to have come originally from the county of Wiltshire, England, 



VI. INTRODUCTION. 

where they were located from the time of William the Conqueror. 
The word " Hitch " is an old nurse name for Richard and " Cock " is 
the ordinary diminutive. "Anciently there were two families of 
Hitchcocks in Wiltshire that bore separate " coats of arms," one as 
follows : 

"Armor, argent (silver), on a cross azure (blue) five fleurs-de-lis, 
gold, in the dexter chief quarter a Lion rampant, red. Crest, 
a castle, red, on the tower a Lion's head erased, in the mouth a 
round buckle, its mottoe " Esse Quod Opto." 

The other one was " Armor, gules (red), a chevron, silver between 
three Alligators. Crest, an Alligator." 

The Pedigree of these Wiltshire families can be found in the Har- 
lean collection of the British Museum and may also be found in full 
in the "Visitation of the County of Wiltshire by Sir T. Phillips, 
A. D., 1623," and also in "Hoar's History of Wiltshire." 

The aim of this book has been to preserve the records of a portion 
of the Hitchcock family so far as they could be secured from town 
and church records, records of Probate Courts and Registries of 
Deeds, and from family records where they have not differed too 
widely from each other. The records of thirty-eight different towns 
in Connecticut and Massachusetts have been personally examined, 
also those of a few towns in New York ; where these and family records 
disagree the preference has been given to town records, except where 
the old family Bible could be found ; in which case the Bible has been 
supposed to be correct. 

No effort has been made to follow the descendants of Matthias or 
Luke after the name has been lost by marriage. The thanks of the 
family are due to Prof. Edward Hitchcock, Jr., of Cornell Univer- 
sity, since he was the first to arouse an interest in the matter and 
he himself collected and arranged the earliest records of the family. 
Also to Mr. Peter M. Hitchcock of Cleveland, Ohio, to the Hon. 
Hiram, and Welcome G. Hitchcock of New York, to Mr. Calvin 
Hitchcock of Ware, Mass. and Mr. John and Miss Frances E. Hitch- 
cock now Mrs. William D. Hunt of Boston for the financial aid, 
without which it would have been impossible to have carried on the 
work even imperfectly. 

Mrs. Elroy M. Avery of Cleveland, Mr. 0. B. Hitchcock of Bing- 
hamton, N. Y. and Capt. Calvin I). Cowles of Washington, I). C, 
have been untiring in their aid not only in making the records of

their own families complete, but in the advice which they have given 
from their wider experience in such work. 

The pictures which embellish the book have oil been generously 
furnished by the descendants of the men whom they represent.

MATTHIAS HITCHCOCK, 

Of Watertown, Mass., and East Haven, Conn., 1639. 



Matthias Hitchcock came from London to Boston on the bark 
" Susan and Ellen " in the spring of 1635. He was then 25 years 
of age. In Bond's History of Watertown is a " Record of Matthew 
Hitchcock a townsman then inhabiting," receiving, July, 1636, 
twenty-three acres of land in the " Great Dividends." This land he 
afterwards sold to D. Patrick. In 1639 his name appears in the 
records of New Haven, Conn., where he was among the original 
signers of the " foundamental agreement made on the 4th of the 
fowerth moneth called June, 1639." He was also one of the five 
purchasers of " South End Neck" now East Haven, Conn., where 
the five dwelt after 1651. 

In Atwater's History of the Colony of New Haven, pp. 1 10-151 r 
are found the following references to Matthias. His mime is given 
in the schedule of Planters prepared before April, 1641, but found 
in the records of 1643. Three persons are numbered in his family. 
He is reckoned as having an estate of £50 and is given ten acres in 
the "First Division," two acres in the neck, four acres in the 
meadow, sixteen acres in the " Second Division," and his yearly 
rates for land are put at eight shillings. 

"Jan. 4, 1647, Matthias Hitchcock for a wilful neglect to walk ye 
round when ye officers called him was fined 5 shillings." 

" Nov. 7, 1648. He was too late with eight others in coming to 
trayning yesterday in the afternoon, but they said they was there 
before the bodye moved which as the Captain said was longer before 
it moved than it used to be, yet because it hath bine the usiall couise 
to count no man late till the bodye hath been removed, ye court 
passed it by this time." 

" Feb. 6, 1655. Matthias Hitchcock passeth over to John Wake- 
field his house and home-lot on the other side of the " West Creek. "

From Colonial Records, p. 103, December, 1651. 

" William Andrews agreed & ordered that Richard Berkley ( ?) & 
Matthias Hitchcock, Edward Patterson, & Edward Hitchcock shall 
have the neck of land by the seaside beyond the cove, & all the 
meadow belonging to it &c — paying to the town one penny the acre 
for 500 acres to settle on it, not to dispose of it without the towns 
consent, if removed from the Plantation within a year to leave the 
land to the town." 

A volume of "-Records of the Colony and Plantation of New 
Haven, 1638-1649" was published in 1857. A "Jurisdiction" was 
formed by the Confederation of the Plantations of Guilford and 
Milford with New Haven, the latter then including Stamford, South- 
old and Branford. This volume contains records of the Colony of 
New Haven while it remained distinct, the beginning of records of 
Jurisdiction (those from 1644-53 being lost), and of town or Plan- 
tation up to 1650. 

Matthias had a brother as this record shows: "Nov. 2, 1642. 
Ct. (Court) ordered that Matthias Hitchcock shall either pay 20s to 
Mr. Perry, which he undertook in behalf of his brother, or else sell 
so much of his brothers goods as will satisfie the said debt." 

That brother was with hardly a doubt Edward Hitchcock. The 
two were fined about training, on the same day, Jan. 4, 1643 ; were 
granted land together Dec, 1651 ; and Matthias testified, April 5, 
1651), as to what Edward said in his last sickness as to giving Eliza- 
beth Perry a child's part. For account of Edward and some of his 
children see Appendix. 

According to these records, Matthias Hitchcock was, Jan. 4, 1643, 
fined Is. for coming late to training; March 7, 1643, fined 3s. 4d. 
for disorder in his watch. On March 10, 1646, seats in the meeting- 
house were assigned to all, but no mention was made of either Luke 
or Edward. On Nov. 6, 1649, Matthias was fined for refusing to 
watch. 

Matthias died Nov. 16, 1669, and Elizabeth his widow in 1676. 
An inventory of her estate, which consisted of her garments and 
some household stuff was taken June 6, 1676. 

The will of Matthias, dated Nov., 1669, is as follows: 

" I Matthias Hitchcock being under the afflicting hand of God, & 
willing to set things in order, & to put my house in order. 

"I doe give the halfe of my two farms to my deare wife during her 
lifetime, & the other parts, yt is to say, the two halves of the two 



DESCENDANTS OF MATTHIAS HITCHCOCK. 6 

farms for John and Nathaniel to improve for their mother to ye halfe. 

" I doe give to my son Eliaser two swine and a waggon, also I doe 
give unto my son Eliaser one acre of ground adjoining to Goodman 
Pattison's lott. I also give unto Eliaser one Hoarse. 

" I doe also give unto Eliaser my son my first farme after my 

widows decease the two lots 1 except, they are to go along with 

the other farme. At the entering those two farmes, & when ye sd 
sons do take possession the two farms are to pay twenty pounds ye 
year ten pounds a farme to be paid to Elizabeth. 

"Nathaniel hath of his own proper estate already in possession, 
one mare one cow one heifer one calf. 

'•'John hath of his own estate proper already in possession, one 
hoarse one hog one sow and one sheepe. 

" Elizabeth hath already in posession of her proper owne, one 
hoarse hobby. All debts are to be payed out of ye stocke remaining 
& all ye stocks remaining after ye debts are paid are to be divided 
between my two younger sons and daughter. 

"Within house all my movable goods & household stuff I give to 
rny deare wife & daughter Elizabeth. All cartes and ~ ploughs & 
tackling are for ye improvement of ye farm. 

Witnessed, The markes of 

James Denison. 
James Wright. 

" Memoranda 

" That ye two witnesses did express before they took oath yt the 
testators mind in these expressions about ye improvement of the two 
farms during his wifes lifetime were that his two sons John and 
Nathaniel should improve the whole two farms for their mother to 
ye halfe." 

We consider Eliaser of the will to be the same as Eliakim of later 
records, for Dodd in his history of East Haven so states and Eliakim 
occupied the identical land. 

MATTHIAS' CHILDREN WERE : 

1. i. Eliakim 2 or Eliaser, b. ■; m Nov. 4, 1666-7, Sarah Merrick,

Eliakim 2 Hitchcock (Matthias 1 ) , son of Matthias and Elizabeth 

Hitchcock was born and married, Nov. 4, 16,66-7, to Sarah 

Merrick of Springfield. She was born in 1643, and was the daughter 
of Thomas Merrick or Mirick (the name is spelled both ways on the 
records), who came from Wales to Roxbury, Mass., in 1630 and 
removed from there to Springfield in 1636. 

Vol. 3 of the New Haven Probate Records, which contained the 
papers relating to the estate of Eliakim Hitchcock, is missing, but an 
inventory of his estate was taken by John Thompson, May 29, 1704. 
This was signed by Thomas Hitchcock, administrator. A quietus 
was granted to Thomas, administrator on estate of his father Eliakim 
of New Haven, Feb. 3, 1706. Later, at a court held April 6, 1719, 
there was a division of the un ad ministered estate of Eliakim Hitch- 
cock, amounting to £17-0-4, which the court ordered divided into 
eight equal parts, k ' whereof two shall be given to the eldest son and 
one each to the other Legatees," and at the same court there was a 
division apparently, (the record is nearly illegible) of land on the 
East Side valued at £418-10-0. Thomas received 4i acres, and 
Matthias, Hannah, Samuel, Joseph, John and Sarah 2 T x n acres each. 
THEIR children WERE: 
i. John 8 , b. Aug. 12, 1668; d. Oct. 24, 1668.

29, 1704. It amounted to £30-07, and his part of his 
father's estate £33-06." From New Haven Probate 
Records " 1st Monday in April, 1710, a quietus was 
granted Thomas Hitchcock of South End adm. on the

standing. He married, 2d, Jane , who survived him. He died 

1758. He purchased land in Norwalk as early as 1710 and continued 
to acquire property there until his death. On New Haven records 
he is styled, Joseph Hitchcock of Norwalk, Blacksmith. His name 
(and that of his son Joseph, Jr.) appears on the records of the Epis- 
copal church in Norwalk in 174 2 and 1749, as making a handsome 
donation to the church. In 1750 Joseph, Sr., is distinctly credited 
" by help rendered the parish by himself & team." In 1749 Joseph, 
Jr., was one of a committee of three to superintend the furnishing of 
the church. In 1757 Joseph, Jr., was elected vestryman, and again 
in 1 758. There is a blank in the recorded history of the church from 
1 760-1 7'S0 and the name does not appear again.

FAMILY OF ELTAKIM. 11 

He seems to have been prominent in church affairs during the years 
between 1738 and 17G0, as his name appears constantly on an old 
account book which was the only relic saved from the fire which burnt 
church and parsonage. According to this book, in 1757 he sub- 
scribed £50-10-0, and gave a day's work at building l^rods of stone 
fence, rating his time at £0-5-7^, also a day's work digging a well, 
rating his time at £0-3-44. In Nov., 1758, himself and Daniel, one 
day's work ; also in Nov., 1758, one of himself, one of Daniel and 
one of Amos. 

In 1760 he bought a pew for which he paid £50-5-0. Mis last 
appearances in Norwalk town records were Aug. 27, 1766, when he 
bought 33 acres of land with dwelling house on it, and in 1769 when 
he sold about 12 acres. He married Hannah Marvin, oldest daughter 
of John Marvin, Sr. b} r his 2d wife Rachel St John. She was born 
at Norwalk, Coun., Dec. 4, 1722.

Samuel 4 HrrcHCOck {Joseph* , Eliakim 2 , Matthias 1 ) son of Joseph 

and Rebecca ( ) Hitchcock was born in Norwalk, Conn., Sept., 

1726 ; married in 1752, Abigail Dunham of Sharon, Conn. She was 
born in April, 1727. Her brother Jonathan was one of the first 
settlers of Sharon and presided over the first town meeting there. 
Samuel removed to Sharou, Conn., about 1752 and settled on a farm 
in the southwest part of the town near the Amenia Union Post- 
office, where in 1757 he purchased his homestead. This farm is still 
in the possession of his grand-daughter, Joanna Lambert. His first 
child, Samuel Jr., was born there in 1755, and the 100th anniversary 
was celebrated there in 1855. Samuel died in Sharon, Jan. 1, 1794. 

From Sedgwick's History of the town of Sharon, I copy the fol- 
lowing. 

" Samuel Hitchcock was from Norwalk in 1752. He purchased 
of Jonathan Gillett the place where Governor Smith lived, and 
resided there five years ; he then removed to the south part of the 
town where his son the late Asa Hitchcock lived, and there spent the 
remainder of his days. It was at his house that the first Methodist 
sermon preached in the town was delivered. The fact that the first 
Methodist sermon was preached at his house, would lead one to think 
that the family were Methodist. The fact is they were Churchmen, 
and during the Revolution they remained passive because of Tory 
proclivities engendered by " Church and State." The descendants 
■of Asa Hitchcock still adhere to the church. Stephen's descendants 
are divided among many denominations, but the greater part are 
Universalists and Unitarians." 

CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION. 

"It is one hundred years the present season since our Grandfather 
took possession of the farm on which the heirs of Asa Hitchcock 
now reside. 

The relatives, residents of this vicinity, propose to commemorate 
the One Hundredth Anniversary of that event, by a gathering of 
as many of the descendents of our Grandfather as may be. We 
would therefore respectfully invite you to meet with us, at the Old 
Homestead, in Sharon, Conn, on Thursday the 17th of September, 
that day being the One Hundredth birthday of our Uncle Thomas

James L. 7 Hitchcock {Hiram 6 , Amos 5 , Samuel*, Samuel 3 , Elia- 
~kim 2 , Matthias 1 ) son of Hiram and Lueinda (Greenleaf ) Hitchcock 
was born June 10, 1*30, in Oriskany Falls, Oneida Co., New York. 
He married, Sept. 14, 1862, in Edinburg, Portage Co., Ohio, Carrie 
M. Trumbull daughter of Robert and Margaret Trumbull. The fol- 
lowing account of James L. Hitchcock is an extract from the " Bio- 
graphical Record of Genesee, Lapeer and Tuscola Counties, Mich." 

"The business circles of Tuscola Co. acknowledge a worthy rep- 
resentative in the subject of this notice, who is a hardware merchant 
in Cass City. He came to this place about twenty years ago and by 
his honest dealings has gained a large trade and what is better still 
has won the esteem of all with whom he has come in contact. It is 
to such as he that the county is indebted for its present high standing 
among other counties of Michigan, for it has ever been his aim to 
promote by his influence and means all enterprises calculated to 
develop the resources of the community. 

When Mr. Hitchcock became of age he learned the tinsmith trade 
of his uncle. Sept. 10. 1858 he purchased from the government

120 acres in Tuscola Co. ; moving on his land he built a log cabin 
which he covered temporarily with sheet iron (this he afterwards 
made into camp kettles and sold to the Indians.) He was the 
pioneer hardware man in Central and Northern Tuscola, his shop 
being located in a dense forest, which abounded in bears, deer, wolves 
and other wild animals. He built the first frame house in miles 
around and manufactured tinware and other goods in his line such as 
Indians and the few white settlers required. The manufacturing of 
those goods occupied his evenings and rainy days while in pleasant 
weather he was busily engaged in improving his place. After he 
was married his wife taught school two years in Tuscola Co., walk- 
ing two miles to and from school both night and morning. March, 
1864, Mr. Hitchcock moved to Wahjamega, erected a store and res- 
idence and while he worked at his trade his wife acted as clerk. 
Sept., 1872 he removed to Cass City where he has since resided. 
Since Mr. Hitchcock came to Cass City he has contributed materially 
to its welfare. In his political views Mr. Hitchcock is a staunch 
Republican, and has held the office of Justice of the Peace, Road 
Commissioner, School Inspector of Dayton Township as well as 
Treasurer of Cass City. 

Through many of the early days of his business here he was 
obliged to haul his goods from Saginaw to this point which made his 
work heavy indeed, however he has lived to enjoy the result of the 
arduous toil of former years."

" She was the widow of Mr. Nathaniel Hitchcock by whom she 
had eleven children, four sons and seven daughters. Ten of these 
survive. The eldest is 79 years old, the youngest 57. Her sixth, a 
son, died aged 62. By best accounts she had 78 grandchildren, of

At the age of 94 she rode 12 or 14 miles to visit one of her child- 
ren. She was able, until her last sickness, to walk abroad and to 
go up and down stairs without assistance.

She possessed a strong mind and retained her faculties but little 
impaired until deranged by her last sickness. She had been for 70 
years a professor of religion and was constant in retiring twice a 
day for secret devotion, and enjoyed a humble hope of eternal glory 
through the redemption of Jesus Christ our Lord.

1717. Deeds in possession of Rev. O. B. Hitchcock of Windham, 
N. Y. show that as early as 1735 Caleb Hitchcock bought land in 
New Haven, Conn., at what is called the "Half Mile" bounded 
easterly by the line between Brauford and New Haven and that it 
remained in the -possession of the family until the time of Caleb's 
death at which time he occupied half the house. A highway appears 
to have been originally laid out through his land ; but this highway 
was sold, Dec. 22, 1742, to Caleb Hitchcock and Hiram Blakeslee, 
through whose land it ran. The deed was signed by Daniel Hitch- 
cock one of the town committee appointed for the purpose. In 1743 
Caleb Hitchcock bought land in the parish of Northbury, town of 
Waterbury, Conn., but did not remove there. Also in 1743 he 
bought of Samuel Barnes of New Haven one part of a sloop called 
the " Three friends, now riding at anker in New Haven harbor, with 
all her Riging, viz., mast, boom, bolsprit," etc., etc., paying for it 
£55 old tenor. In 1757 he bought land adjoining his own, and also 
Daniel Hitchcock's land. 

He married 2d, May 26, 1757, Sarah Shepard, widow of Thomas 
Shepard of New Haven. She was perhaps born March 12, 1712 
and was daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Bradley) Hotchkiss. She

" White Haven church," at New Haven center. Caleb died March 
30, 1777. Administration on his estate was granted to Jacob and 
Samuel Hitchcock, April 7, 1777. New Haven Probate records show 
that he made a will but never signed it, "as he was waiting for his 
son Caleb who lived at a considerable distance." The children agreed 
to the provisions of this will and a division was accordingly made. 
His widow Lydia died Jan. 9, 1782, se. 55, which would give her

Leak. He moved from East Haven to Southington, Conn., Feb. 27, 
1747 — 8, when he paid to his brothers and sisters " valuable consid- 
eration for all their rights in his father's estate," he is called " of 
New Haven" and about 1760 is called "Stephen Hitchcock of 
Farmington, Conn." He possibly married 2d, Nov. 5, 1778, Mrs. 
Abigail Pardee. In 1785, April 27, Stephen Hitchcock of South-

Conn., Jan. 1, 1708—9. He married, March 1, 1732—3, Esther 
Ford, daughter of Matthew Ford. They would seem from births and 
baptisms of children to have lived at Cheshire, Conn., as well as 
New Haven and also on the church records of Cheshire appears, 
" Esther, wife of John Hitchcock, bapt. Aug. I, 1742." She died 
in New Haven, July 11, 1749, just six days after the birth of her 
son, who was baptized afterward in Cheshire and named Ichabod.

at Stony Point. After the war, by permission of the town, he built 
a house in the twenty rod highway just north of Burying Ground 
Hill. 

The following, relating to Amos Hitchcock, is taken from the 
History of Southington: 



FAMILY OF NATHANIEL. 65 

" Amos Hitchcock enlisted in the army in the company of Capt. 
Gad Stanley of New Britain and was connected with the regiment of 
Col. Jedadiah Huntington of Norwich. He was at the battle of 
Long Island, and together with his sons Jason and Samuel, he was 
with ' Mad Anthony ' Wayne at Stony Point when that position 
was taken July 15, 1779. In the first forlorn hope called for he was 
the second to step forth. When the company was filled it was 
ordered that if any felt unwilling to go forward they might yet 
retire. Mr. Hitchcock said that one man stepped back, and was 
met with ' such yells of contempt,' that if others desired to do so 
they were deterred from it. He said that in some way they had 
learned the enemy's countersign, and were thus enabled to execute 
successfully the venture." 

The following is a letter he wrote his wife while in the service : 

"New York, Aug. 30, 1776. 
Dear Wife : — 

I take this opportunity to write to you to let you know that 
through the divine Goodness of God I am well as I hope these few 
lines will find you also. The news we have here is more than I am 
able to inform you in one sheet of paper, the twenty-second day of 
this month the King's troops landed down at the Narrows upon Long 
Island, and marched up about five miles and they are in camp, and 
a tuesday of this week they came out against us and got around us 
before we knew anything of it, their light horse came in front and 
we fit upon a retreat back to our forts which was about four miles, 
they got around us two or three times, but through the goodness of 
God Capt. Stanley's company all escaped safe, although many others 
did not, there is not but about seventy men left in Colonel Hunting's 
Regiment, six out of our place Namely — Colonel Clark, Ensign 
Gillett, Sargent Hungerforcl, Gad Fuller, John Duttou, Isaac Potter, 
killed or took a tuesday night about midnight orders came to us to 
leave Long Island and go over to York and now Long Island is in 
the hands of the Buchers and I believe New York will be soon, by 
ivhat I can learn there is something at the bottom, but what I can- 
not tell, God only knows. 

So I subscribe myself your husband, 

Amos Hitchcock. 

P. S. Send every opportunity. I reseaved your letter and 
tobacco and was glad of them, and I was very glad to understand

Richardson. He is an artist. "It -was in Mr. George 
Hitchcock's Dutch garden at Egmond Hoef that Mr. 
Shannon painted the well-known portrait of his friend, 
and this same garden gave him the sobriquet of ' Tulip ' 
Hitchcock. The gold medal of the American Art Associ- 
ation was awarded to him for his ' Toilers of the Sea.' 
His ' Scarecrow ' represented a red-cloaked girl sitting in 
a field of red poppies. It is in painting the sand dunes of 
Holland that Mr. Hitchcock is seen at his very best. ' La 
Maternite ' is one of these, and shows us a woman in the 
sea dunes returning from work with her children. His 
early life was spent at Providence, in'the United States, 
and here he was educated for the law, but, abandoning his 
profession for the more pleasing paths of paint, he 
crossed the Atlantic to study in Paris under Bouhtnger 
and Lefebvre. It was Mesdag, however, whom he found 
at the Hague, who left the final impression on the painter, 
and from that time he has remained faithful to that laud 
of dikes and dunes, blue china and black tulips, Avorking 
all through the summer at Egmond-aan-Zee, elaborating 
all the winter in Paris, London or Madrid — a truly ideal 
existence for an artist who is at one and the same time a

Hiram 7 Hitchcock (Jesse G , John 5 , John 4 , John 3 , Nathaniel 2 , 
Matthias 1 ) son of Jesse and Chloe (Grandy) Hitchcock, was born in 
Claremont, N. H., Aug. 27, 1832. At the age of sixteen he entered 
Black River Academy, at Ludlow, Vt. One of his instructors there, 
by whom he was influenced, was the late Chief Justice of Iowa, Austin 
Adams, LL. D., who had just graduated from Dartmouth College. 
He fitted for Dartmouth, but instead of entering he accepted a posi- 
tion as instructor in Black River Academy. In 1852 his e}'es failing 
he gave up study, and spent the winter in New Orleans in the office 
of the St. Charles Hotel. In 1866 his health failing, he retired from 
business and traveled extensively abroad where he revived his interest 
and studies in aucient art in Egypt, Syria, Cyprus, Greece and Italy. 
He located in Hanover, N. H., in 1871. Early the next year he 
announced to the world the extensive discoveries of General di Ces- 
nola in Cyprus, and read papers on that subject before the learned 
societies of New York and also before the Faculty and students of 
Dartmouth College. A paper of his on this subject was published 
in Harper's Magazine of that year, which attracted much attention 
abroad. During the same j^ear the degree of Master of Arts was 
conferred upon Mr. Hitchcock by Dartmouth, and, on motion of the 
venerable and eminent Samuel Birch, LL. D., President of the British 
Society of Biblical Archaeology, he was made a member of that 
society. In 1876 he was appointed by the Governor a Trustee of 
the State College ; two years later he was elected a Trustee of 
Dartmouth College. In 1877 he represented Hanover in the State 
Legislature. In 1879 he resumed his connection with the Fifth 
Avenue Hotel. Scarcely was Commencement over in 1889, when the 
old college church was torn up for repairs, which transformed its 
interior from a bare, unattractive room to one far handsomer than 
could possibly have been built new for any moderate sum, and the

historic building is preserved. During the autumn of the same year 
was laid the foundation for a hospital which is the finest building in 
town, and as well as being of immense value to the Medical College 
is a boon to the people in this vicinity. The burden of the expen- 
sive repairs on the church was almost wholly borne by the Hon. 
Hiram Hitchcock, and the hospital, now completed and opened, is 
entirely his gift. Mr. Hitchcock has filled many positions of honor 
and trust during his active career. A life member of the American 
Geographical Society, the New York Historical Society and the New 
England Society of New York, a member of the Dartmouth Scientific 
Association, the New York Academy of Sciences, and the New York 
Chamber of Commerce. He was also President of the Nicaragua 
Canal Association, which obtained the concessions from Nicaragua 
and Costa Rica, under which the canal will be constructed ; and on 
the organization of the Maritime Canal Company of Nicaragua under 
the charters of the United States and of the State of Vermont, he 
was elected its President which office he still holds. He m. Oct. 21,

John 2 Hitchcock (Matthias 1 ) son of Matthias Hitchcock of New 
Haven, Conn., was probably born in New Haven, for his father was 
at New Haven as early as Jnne, 1639, at which time Matthias Hitch- 
cock was one of the original signers of the " foundamental agree- 
ment" of the New Haven colony. John Hitchcock was one of the 
original proprietors of Wallingford, Conn., which town was founded 
in 1670. He married 1st, Jan. 18, 1670, Abigail Merriman, born 
April 18, 1654, daughter of Capt. Nathaniel Merriman, who was 
one of the first settlers of Wallingford. John Hitchcock's first three 
children were born in New Haven, 1 6 7 1 to 1 674 ; and he removed to Wal- 
lingford in 1676. He calls himself " landowner, yeoman or planter." 
He married 2d, Mary. The inventory of his estate shows that he 
owned some 183 acres in different lots and that his whole property 
amounted to £302. In the settlement of the estate the widow is 
called Mary, and on Aug. 12, 1717, she appears as "Mary Clark, 
alias Hitchcock." In the will Nathaniel is called the eldest son. 
No mention is made in the division of property of Samuel, Elizabeth 
or Hannah, and they may have died ; but apparently Elizabeth had 
married Daniel Loynesor Lines, andHannah, John Lines his brother ; 
for Wallingford records give, first, Sept. 29, 1708, a deed of land of 
John Hitchcock to his son-in-law, Daniel Loynes, and later John 
Loynes deeds land to his father-in-law John Hitchcock, part of which 
came to said John Loynes from his brother Daniel Loynes, and still 
later Feb. 10, 1709, John Hitchcock gives a piece of land to his 
son-in-law Daniel Lines. It also appears that the widow of John 
Lines was " Hannah." John Hitchcock died July 6, 1716. His 
widow Mary married April 18, 1717, Samuel Clark. 

THEIR CHILDREN WERE : 

i. A Daughter 3 , b. Oct. 1, 1671, at New Haven, 
ii. Samuel, b. 1G72, at New Haven; d. young.

of him as he appeared when about 85. "I was making dirt ovens 
and looking down the street saw my grandfather coming. He sat 
straight as an arrow, in a two-wheeled carriage without a top, hold- 
ing tight reins over a white horse that went like the wind. He pulled 
up and jumped out like a boy. He wore a low crowned hat with a 
rounded top and a broad brim turned up behind, and curled in at the 
sides, and a long coat reached below his knees, and buttoned up in 
front to the throat, with a standing collar. His hair was as white as 
snow and fell down his back in curls. He walked up to me and 
shook hands. Then he put his hand into his side pocket, and took 
out a little leather bag, and untwistiug the top, poked his forefinger 
round a heap of great silver pieces and handed me a ninepence."

nership in trade " with Douglas & Crane, and that he then had no 
family. He was appointed Major of N. Y. Levies for service on the 
frontier, about July 1, 1780, for eight months, in the pay of Congress,

Judge and Chief Justice Peter 6 Hitchcock (Valentine^, Peter*, 
John 9 , John 2 , Matthias 1 ) son of Valentine and Sarah (Hotchkiss) 
Hitchcock, was born in Cheshire, Conn., Oct. 19, 1781. He grad- 
uated at Yale in 1801 and was admitted to the bar in 1804. He 
married in Cheshire, Dec. 12, 1805, Nabby 5 Cook, born July 10, 
1784, youngest child of Elam 4 and Abigail (Hall) Cook, son of 
Ephraim 3 and Lydia (Doolittle) Cook, son of Samuel 2 Cook, who 
came to NewHaveu, Conn., in 1663, and removed to Wal ling-ford, 
Conn, in 1670. He was son of Henry 1 Cook who was at Plymouth, 
Mass. before 1640. He was from Kent, England. In 1806, Peter 
Hitchcock emigrated to Burton, Ohio, in the original county of 
Geauga, one of the two counties into which the entire Western 
Reserve, with a population not exceeding 5 or 6000, was then divided. 
His family was the fourth or fifth which settled in that township. 
He was a member of the Ohio Legislature 1810 — 1812, state senator 
1812 — 16; in 1814 commissioned Lieut. Col., 1st Reg., 4th Brig., 
4th Division, Ohio Militia. In 1815 he was tendered by Gov. Thos. 
Worthiugton a commission as Judge of the Supreme court of Ohio, 
which position he declined. In 1816 he was commissioned Major 
Gen., 4th Division, Ohio Militia. He was member of U. S. con- 
gress, 1817 — 1819 ; Judge of the Supreme court of Ohio from 
1819—1833, and from 1835—42 and from 1845—52, and for twenty- 
one years was Chief Justice. In 1850 he was chosen member of the 
convention to form the new constitution of the state of Ohio. He 
was the embodiment of common sense and in "The Reports" his 
decisions are regarded with high respect. Judge Hitchcock exhibited 
in his judicial course a breadth far beyond the too technical learning 
of the times. On many subjects, as for instance corporate powers, 
ultra vires, usury and technical objections to legal rights, his opinions 
have a force and spirit much more in accord with the present day

of the states at that time. His decisions have had a strong and 
happy influence upon the future law of Ohio, and reading them con-

was a good man and on the roll of those in the generation just passed

Pres. Henry Lawrence 7 Hitchcock, D. D., (Peter e , Valentine 5 , 
Peter 4 ', John 3 , John 2 , Matthias 1 ) son of Chief Justice Peter and 
Nabby (Cook) Hitchcock, was born in Burton, Ohio, Oct. 31, 1813. 
He prepared for college at Burton academy, graduated at Yale 1832, 
taught at Burton academy two years, partly taught and partly studied 
theology a third year, entered Lane seminary at Cincinnati, O., in 
1835, and studied two years under Dr. Lyman Beecher, was licensed 
at Burton, 1837, and ordained and installed, that year, pastor over the 
Congregational church in Morgan, O. He was married Dec. 20, 1837 
to Clarissa Mary Sophia Ford, eldest child of Stephen and Eunice 
(Brooks) Ford, born Aug. 20, 1818, at Burton. Her mother was 
daughter of Gideon and Clara (Pond) Brooks of Cheshire, Conn. 
Her father Stephen Ford was second child of John and Esther 
(Cook) Ford, early settlers of Burton, O., from Cheshire, Conn. 
Esther Cook was daughter of Elam and Abigail (Hall) Cook, men- 
tioned under No. 62. In 1840 Mr. Hitchcock was called to the 
recently organized Second Presbyterian Church of Columbus. O. 
He labored with such ardor and success that the prospered church 
found it must colonize and he helped in building a church and secur- 
ing a minister for the colony. He was called the leading minister 
of Central Ohio for that period. 

May 31, 1855, he was elected President of Western Reserve Col- 
lege ; he accepted July 10th and was inaugurated at Commencement, 
July 1 2th. It was a time in the college history of great difficulty and 
discouragement, but with energy and patience he took up the work 
and met with success. He maintained the high standard, removed 
all encumbrances, added largely to the endowment, and for fifteen 
years labored as President, Professor, Pastor and Financial Agent. 
He was often called to serve surrounding towns. 

"Worn out, he was obliged to lay aside work and Oct. 8, 1867, with 
Mrs. Hitchcock he started for Europe. They spent the winter in 
South France and touring in Italy and England. Returning in June, 
1868, he resumed work, but the old vigor was with difficulty main- 
tained and in 1871, he resigned the presidency, remaining on the 
faculty as Instructor and Pastor. On a Sabbath afternoon, July 6, 
1873, after a short illness he died and was buried in Hudson, O., 
July 8. Said President Cutler in his funeral address: "He had 
wonderful patience, trust, contentment in doing duty. ... He 



FAMILY OF JOHN. 177 

was always ready for service, no matter how humble the work, how 
hard, how unpopular. Whenever he saw duty, nothing could deter 
him from walking straight forward in the path of it. He was amaz- 
ingly self-sacrificing." The Committee of Cleveland Presbytery 
spoke of him as of a modest and self -distrustful spirit, yet independ- 
ent in thought and firm in action. 

Soon after his death Mrs. Hitchcock went to Michigan City, Ind. 
and lived with her oldest son until her death Sept. 20, 1878. She 
was buried in Hudson, O., Sept. 24, by the side of her husband and

Luke Hitchcock took freeman's oath in New Haven in company with 
Edward Hitchcock July 1, 1644. The date of his removal to Wethers- 
field is not known but he was a member of the jury at a court held in 
Hartford June 5. 1646, and March 2, 1647. As New Haven was not 
under the government of Conn, at that time he was probably living 
in Wethersfield in 1646. Luke lived in the center of the village* 
The house now standing on the place was built by Silas Dean some 
time before the Revolutionary war. He was by trade a shoemaker ; 
a Capt. at Crown Point in 1645; and selectman at Wethersfield in 
1653 and 1656. There are on Wethersfield records fourteen tracts 
of land recorded as belonging to Luke Hitchcock. The following is 
a sample of these records. " Land of Luke Hitchcock of Wethers- 
field, Conn., on Connecticut river, one piece whereon his barn now 
standeth, containing one and one half acres more or less. The end 
abuting on rose lane South East & on New Street & Cove." 

None of these deeds are dated. Some of it was bought of AVill 
Gibbons of Hartford. One tract is recorded in this way : "Another 
tract of land which was given to his son John Hitchcock by Will 
Gibbons containing nine acres." After Luke's death in 1659, this 
nine acres is recorded in John's name having been given him by his 
Uncle Gibbons. The following account of Luke was given in Oct., 
1801, by his great-grandson Aaron Hitchcock of Suffleld, Conn. 
" Luke Hitchcock left the land of his nativity about the middle of 
the 17th century, as near as could be determined. He had received 
a large tract of land lying in the eastern part of New England and 
came out with a view of taking possession of the same, when he 
arrived he found it inhabited by numerous hordes of natives deter- 
mined to resist all encroachments of the English.- In this situation 
he determined to abandon the enterprise and settled in Wethersfield. 
He was peculiarly fortunate in cultivating the friendship of the 
Indians, who in testimony of their attachment to him gave him a deed 
of the town of Farmington. This deed was a clear and valid title 
to the land but was so little thought of that it was destroyed by his 
wife, who used it to cover a pie in the oven." In 1659 Luke signed 
an engagement to remove to Hadley but died the same year, Nov. 1 , 
1659. His will which was admitted to Probate Nov. 28, 1659 was as 
follows : 

Oct. 17th, 1659.

Body yet in soundness of mind & strong of memory considering my

mortality and knowing it to be my duty to provide for my own family 
& settle my estate that I ma} 7 leave no occasion of trouble to them 
when I am gone and that I may Free myself before T die I do there- 
fore leave this testimony upon record as my lust will and testament. 

First I do profess my faith & hopes to be in the free grace alone 
of God in Jesus Christ whose I am and to whom I have forever 
given up myself both soul and body, being fully persuaded of his 
unchangeable love and good will both in life and death. And then 
for my outward estate I dispose of the same as follows. 

First I do therefore bequeath and give unto my wife Elizabeth the 
full power and disposal of all that estate which God has given me in 
houses, lands, cattle and goods whatsoever within doors and without 
Provided that in case she marry again that she betake herself to the 
thirds of my lands and houses and that she give unto my son John 
the house I now dwell in with the outhouses thereunto belonging with 
the home lot and half in quantity of the lot or pease of land that I 
lately bought of W. Chester, the homeward pease, and, to my sou 
Luke the other half of that the line betwixt them running so that both 
may have the benefit of the water, furthermore to my son John that 
pease of meadow lying in mile meadow that I bought of William 
Smith and my 4 acres in Benner meadow also to my son Luke that 
pease of laud in the great meadow with passage through his Brothers 
lands, also to give unto my daughter. Hanna Fort}' pounds with her 
Uncles gift, these portions to be paid to either of them at the age of 
eighteen years or at the death of my wife, which comes soonest, and 
my will is what estate is in her hands, beyond and above the foresaid 
portions at the time of her marriage that she divide the same equaly 
among my aforesaid three children excepting thirds of all my house- 
hold stuff and in case of any of my said children dye before they 
have issue then such lands & houses to remain to the surviving and 
his heirs and I do desire that Mr John Russell pastor of the church 
would together with the church appoint some to see this my will per- 
formed. Hereunto I have subscribed my hand the day & year above 
written

FIFTH GENERATION AND CHILDREN. 

25. 

John 5 Hitchcock (Jo/mi 4 , John 2 , John 2 , Luke 1 ) son of John and 
Abigail (Stebbins) Hitchcock, was born in Springfield, Mass., April 
21, 1722. He married in May, 1743, Thankful Burt, born in 1724, 
and both were admitted to the church in Wilbraham, Mass. from 
Springfield church by letter Nov. 18, 1744. He was Lieutenant in 
Capt. James Warriner's Company at the time of the Lexington alarm 
and was at Lexington and also at Ticonderoga and on pay roll of 
Capt. Cadwell's Co., Dec. 25, 1776. He was the first Deacon of the 
South Parish church Wilbraham. He was a man of great physical 
strength. We quote the following sketch: "Lieut. Hitchcock was 
an athlete as well as a deacon and a lieutenant. Had he lived in 
Greece he would have taken the highest prizes at the Olympic and 
Isthmian games. He was a man of prodigious muscular strength, 
agility and endurance. A man stopped by the field where he was at 
work and boasted of the speed of the horse he was riding. The 
Deacon told him that he could go to Springfield quicker than a horse. 
The man resolutely denied it. The Deacon gave a challenge. It was 
accepted and the Deacon won. He ran ten miles, beating the horse. 
He would lift a load of hay, such loads as were drawn then (in two 
wheeled carts) by getting under the axletree of the cart, and taking 
it on his shoulders in a stooping posture. He would turn a cart over 
by taking one end of the axletree with one hand. 

When he was seventy years old, he came in to dinner and as usual, 
hung his hat on its nail on the summer." (A " summer " is a beam 
in the middle of a ceiling, supporting the floor above, and seen 
exposed in some old houses.) " He said to his wife, ' I am seventy 



FAMILY OF JOHN. 231 

years old today ; you remember that when we were first married I 
used to amuse you by taking my hat down with my toes. I wonder 
if I could do it now.' He sprang from the floor, caught the hat off 
with his toes, struck on his feet like a cat, hung up his hat again, 
turned to the table, asked a blessing and feasted. 

He had double teeth in front. When he loaded grain in a cart, he 
would seize a bag with his teeth, and giving it a swing, throw it into 
the cart with the aid of a push with his knee. He would hold a ten- 
penny nail in his teeth, and break it off with his fingers. When he 
died all his teeth were sound. He said jocosely, that he did not know 
a man he could not whip — or run away from." His wife Thankful 
died, July 17, 1800. He died Oct. 11, 1807. $

Margaret 5 Hitchcock {Samuel*, John 3 , John 2 , Luke 1 ) daughter 
of Samuel and Ruth (Stebbius) Hitchcock, was born in Westfield, 
Mass., May 25, 1741. She married in Westfield, in 1762, Richard 2 
Falley, (Richard 1 ) who was born Jan. 31, 1740, at Georgius River 
in the Province of Maine. 

"Her husband's father was a native of the Isle of Guernsey, 
France. When he was eight years of age a French man of war 
touched at the island, and a whole school, himself included, was 
invited on board to take dinner in the cabin. When they came on 
deck the ship was out at sea, and the children were taken to Nova 
Scotia, and left there, to settle that new country. 

Her husband, Richard Falley, Jr., when sixteen years old became 
a soldier and served in the French and Indian war. At the capture 
of Fort Edward, N. Y., he was made a prisoner by the Indians. He 
was adopted by one of the chiefs, taken to Montreal and finally 
bought by a lady for sixteen gallons of rum. By her he was sent 
home to Westfield, Mass. There he subsequently married Margaret 
Hitchcock, who was called ' a woman of uncommon nerve and 
energy.' She was one of the foremothers of Pres. G rover Cleve- 
land. We next hear of her husband Richard Falley as commanding 
a company at the battle of Bunker Hill, and of her eldest son, Fred- 
erick, afterwards a Major, as his father's drummer ; and he drummed 
all through the fight. 

Immediately after the battle of Bunker Hill, Richard Falley was 
appointed superintendent of the Armory at Springfield, Mass. He 
held this position till after the war. Springfield muskets with ' R. 
Falley ' on the locks were well known in those days and were esteemed 
good shooters by marksmen and hunters. He was a powerful man, 
and it is stated by a grandson, Dr. I. W. Falley, now resident in 
Hillsdale, Mich., he had heard his father say he had often seen him 
take a barrel of cider and lift it over the side of a cart as one would 
a small keg." 

Richard 2 Falley died at Westfield, Mass., Sept. 3, 1808. His 
widow, Margaret (Hitchcock) Falley, died in Volney (now Fulton), 
N. Y., Feb. 11, or 18, 1820. The children of Margaret (Hitchcock) 
Falley were : 

1. Lovisa 6 , b. Dec. 3, 1763; d. May 20, 1807.

tionary army July 1, 1777 in Col. John Brewer's regiment, was in 
Col. David Wells' regiment, also in 1782 in Col. Gideon Burt's regi- 
ment. He was Captain of militia and received his commission 
July 7, 1789 from John Hancock. His will was signed May 21, 
1818. He died Sept. 13, 1819, and his widow Thankful not till ten 
years later, Oct, 17, 1829. After that'the provision of his will as to 
his tombstone could be carried out. He gave each of his children 
except Eli and Ethan $2, — to Eli nearly all his property, on condi- 
tion that he remain with, and take care of him during his life ; and 
"put up after his death a white marble tombstone of sufficient 
dimensions and with such inscriptions as may serve, not only as an 
ordinary memorial of the death of his parents, but also be descrip- 
tive of their first settling in this place and whence they came." The-

father in Suffield for ten years after his marriage ; but becoming dis- 
contented he pursuaded his brother-in-law, Alexander King, to take 
his place in the old homestead. Leaving his family in Suffield he 
went to Charleston, S. C, after indigo which he sold to pedlars. He 
also speculated in land. Acquiring a taste for travel he finally went 
to Europe with a cargo of indigo, which was wrecked. The loss was 
so great as to seriously involve him and make it necessary for him to 
go again to Europe, where he remained three years. During this 
time he travelled in France and England and while there found traces 
which led him to believe that the Hitchcock family originally came 
from Wales.

second daughter of Col. Ethan Allen. This marriage was the first 
one put upon Burlington town records. He resided in Burlington, 
Vt., until 1794 when he removed to Vergennes where he lived until 
18(6 when he returned to Burlington. Chapter 10, p. 142 of H. P. 
Smith's " History of Addison County, Vermont," gives the following 
sketch of Judge Samuel Hitchcock : 

" Hon. Samuel Hitchcock, the fourth son of Noah and Mary Hitch- 
cock, and grandson of David Hitchcock, one of the original settlers 
of Brimfield, Hampshire County, Mass., was born in Brimfield, March 
23, 1755. He fitted for college with Rev. James Bridgham, a grad- 
uate of Harvard University in 1726. * * * He was 
graduated at Harvard Universit} 7 in 1777. After his graduation he 
read law at Brookfield, Worcester County, Mass., with the late Hon. 
Jedediah Foster, and was, probably, admitted to the practice of the 
law at Worcester. About 1786 Samuel Hitchcock removed to Bur- 
lington, Vt.. where he commenced the practice of his profession. 
He was the first State's attorney appointed in Chittenden County and 
held the office from 1787 to 1790 inclusive. He represented the town 
from 1789 to 1793 inclusive. He was a member of the convention 
of delegates of the people of the State of Vermont, held at Benning- 
ton Jan. 10, 1791, to rati fy the constitution of the United States, 
which had been submitted by an act of the Vermont Legislature 
passed Oct. 27, 1790. The charter of the University of Vermont, 
which was granted by the General Assembly, Nov. 3, 1791, is said to 
have been drafted by Samuel Hitchcock, while the main features of 
it were furnished by another alumnus of Harvard University, the 
Rev. Samuel Williams, D. D., of Rutland. Samuel Hitchcock was 
elected one of the trustees from the start and continued to hold that 
office until his death. lie was secretary of the corporation from 
1791 to 1800, when he was succeeded by the Rev. Daniel Clark Saun- 
ders, D. D., president of the University. Dr. Wheeler, in his histor- 
ical discourse, says that the creative mind of Dr. Samuel Williams 
and the reflective and profound mind of Judge Hitchcock had worked 
for the University of Vermont and in it. He was elected attorney- 
general of Vermont under the act of October, 1790, and was suc- 
ceeded in 1793 by the Hon. Daniel Buck, of Norwich. Samuel 
Hitchcock and Lemuel Chipman. of Pawlet, were the presidential 
electors at large from Vermont at the second presidential election in 
1793. Lott Hall, of Westminster, and Paul Brigham, of Norwich, 
were their colleagues in the first electoral college in Vermont, and all

were appointed by the Legislature in 1792, and they east the vote of 
Vermont at Windsor for George Washington and John Adams. In 
1797 the second general revision of the laws was completed by a 
committee consisting of Roswell Hopkins, of Vergennes ; Richard 
Whiting, of Brattleboro ; Nathaniel Chipman, of Tinmouth, and 
Samuel Hitchcock (then of Vergennes). Samuel Hitchcock was 
judge of the District Court of the United States for the district of 
Vermont, and judge of the Circuit Court of the second circuit of the 
United States, receiving his appointment from President John Adams, 
and going out of that office when the judiciary act was repealed. 
Judge Hitchcock's scholarship was of a superior order, and as a 
lawyer he ranked among the foremost in New England. He was 
endowed with a large measure of benevolence and admirable social 
qualities. As a conversationalist he was unrivaled for humor and 
brilliant repartee. His personal appearance was dignified and com- 
manding. He had a light complexion and sharp blue eyes, and to a 
handsome person of medium size and height he added polished man- 
ners and a pleasing address." 

He died in Burlington, Vt., March 30, 1813 and his widow Lucy, 
Aug. 27, 1842, se. 74. 

In the same volume (pp. 640 — 701) is given a history of the city 
of Vergennes where Samuel Hitchcock lived from 1794 to 180G. 
From this it appears that the town of Vergennes became a city in 
1794, the first city officers being elected in July, 1794, and in con- 
nection with this appears the following statement (p. 658) : 

' k The records of the Court of Common Council show a respect for 
a strict construction of the charter law, that has not always since 
been apparent. When, a few months later, Samuel Hitchcock moved 
from Burlington to Vergennes, and became associated with the picked 
men elected to fill the city offices, Vergennes could boast of as 
large a number of strong minded and accomplished men as ever 
graced a country village. Samuel Hitchcock, who had married a 
daughter of Ethan Allen, and was himself the peer of auy lawyer of 
his day, lived for several years in a house standing on the ground 
now occupied by the Catholic Church."

Hon. Henry 6 Hitchcock (Samuel 5 , JVoa/i 4 , Nathaniel* , John 2 , 
Luke 1 ) son of Judge Samuel and Lucy Caroline (Alleu) Hitchcock, 
was born in Burlington, Vt., Sept. 19, 1792. "He graduated at the 
University of Vermont with honor in 1811. The death of his father 
left him with care of farm and family on his hands, but he managed 
to get time for a thorough legal education. He then, in 1816, went 
to St. Stephens, near Mobile, and then a part of Mobile Territory, 
where he gained the highest reputation as a lawyer and where he made 
money. In 1819 he was appointed Attorney General for Alabama 
and later moved to Mobile. He successively filled the offices of 
District Attorney, Justice of the Supreme Court (of Alabama) and 
later Chief Justice. Speculations in real estate now took much of 
his time and gave him a property of over half a million of dollars." 
He married in Oct., 1821, Anne Ervvin, dau. of Colonel Andrew 
Erwin of Nashville, Tenn. She was born in Ashville, N. C, in 
1803 and d. at St. Louis, 1854. He had eight children of whom four 
died in infancy and one in youth. 

" In 1835, at 43 years of age he was baptized, made profession of 
faith and became a member of the Presbyterian church. He died 
Aug. 11, 1839, of yellow fever." His personal friend, Gen. Grandey 
of Alabama, says of him: "He was the best known, the most 
beloved, the most distinguished, the ablest, the most worttry and the 
most popular man in Alabama during the last ten years of his life." 

Melvin L. Gray, Esq., of the St. Louis Bar states that "early in 
September, 1839, he went to Alabama and well remembers that the 
newspapers throughout the state were then "in mourning" — their 
columns bordered with heavy black lines — for his recent death, which 
was universally spoken of as a great public calamity." 

HIS CHILDREN WERE : 

i. Caroline Loraine 7 , b. April 8, 1825, at Mobile, Ala. ;m. March, 
1857, Dr. Samuel G. DeCamp, Surgeon U. S. A., March,

Mrs. Samautha Farwell of Sandusky, 0. " Many relatives of his 
2d wife," so writes a friend, " were left orphans and he took care of 
them. We have often heard him remark that he had brought up 
fourteen orphan children who call him father." He removed to San- 
dusky City, O. and was there in 1849 when the cholera broke out. In 
that city of then from 5000 to 7000 inhabitants over 100 person died 
in three days. Fully half the people left their homes by the two 
lines of railroad south and the three lines of steamers to Cleveland, 
Toledo and Detroit. There was no railroad then to Cleveland. Rev. 
John Fisher, pastor of the Presbyterian church died and his remains 
were reverently placed in an unpainted coffin and Dea. Hitchcock 
and Henry Marsh, Esq., were the only persons who accompanied the 
remains to the grave and saw them properly buried. Dea. Hitchcock 
was heroic in care for the dying and the dead and proved himself one 
of those dauntless Christian men whom such an occasion brings to 
the front. For some days as our markets were forsaken we had to 
telegraph in the morning for our dinners which Cleveland sent free 
by the steamboat. Then Cincinnati moved her cholera hospital to 
Sandusky and in a few days sixty physicians came from different 
parts of Ohio. 

"In 1861 Dea. Hitchcock moved to Alpena, Mich., having pur- 
chased a tract of land where a large part of the city now stands. 
Six months after arriving here he was instrumental in organizing the 
first church in the county which consisted of eight members, he being 
one of the deacons until his death. The first meetings were held in 
a hall where to call the people together the Deacon suspended a part 
of a circular saw for a bell and made it ring by striking it with a 
hammer. 

" He was one of the early anti-slaveiy men of this country and will 
be long remembered by the early actors in that movement as wise in 
council and firm in action, yet never offensive in speech or uncharit- 
able to the motives of others." He died at Alpena, Feb. 9, 1881.

Chester 7 Hitchcock (Prentice 6 , Luke 5 , Luke 4 , Luke 3 , John 2 r 
Luke 1 ) sou of Prentice and Belinda (Brace) Hitchcock, was born in 
Stanbridge, Canada, June 11, 1810. He died in 1892. 

"His boyhood was spent on the farm in Canada. "When a young 
man he came west to Rockford, 111. and engaged in mercantile busi- 
ness. He was also in Michigan City, while still a young man, in a 
similar business. A few years later he went to Buffalo, X. Y. and 
became interested in grain commission and shipping. 

He was married there in 1849 to Elizabeth Matters. Their chil- 
dren, Charles and Ida were twins, born in Buffalo in 1852. Charles 
died in 1857. His death was a great blow to his father who had 
centered all his plans in him. In 1858 he moved to La Porte, Ind. 
and soon to Belvidere, 111. He was at this time engaged in business 
in Chicago. Later he lived in Toledo, 0. and then again in Buffalo 
in 1863. In a year or two he returned to Chicago where for many 
years he was interested in dealing in grain. 

In 1870 he went with his wife and daughter to California, butmade 
it only his winter home, returning each year to his business in 
Chicago. 

After 1880 he spent his summers almost entirely at his farm near 
Rockford, 111. called 'Black Hawk Springs.' This place he owned for 
many years and enjoyed better than any other, especially on account 
of its fine water. 

In character he was energetic and genial and always anxious to be 
helpful to others. Though he lived to be 82 years old, he was very 
active and as healthy as a child to the last. He was quite as inter- 
ested in the progress of the world, and in minor matters, as though 
he were a young man. His acquaintance throughout the parts of the 
country in which he had lived at different times was extensive. One 
who has known him well for many years, says of him, ' I have known 
Mr. Hitchcock since I was a boy, and I have never known him to do 
an unkind or ungenerous deed or to speak unkindly to or of any 
one.' "

married 3d, Miss Ellen Clark of Brattleboro, Vt. He received 
the degree of M. D. from Dartmouth college in 18^/ and also 
from Middlebury college. He began the practice of medicine 
in Ashby, Mass., and soon gained a reputation by his sagacit}' 
in diagnosis, and his skill as an operator. After a few years 
he removed to Fitchburg, Mass., and his professional career there- 
after was one of marked distinction. In the later years of his 
life he was recognized as the leading surgeon of that section of Mas- 
sachusetts. He was the second surgeon on record to perform the 
operation of oesophagotomy, and he began to operate for strangu- 
lated hernia at a time when the operation was regarded by most 
members of his profession as entirely impracticable. His first sub- 
ject was one who had been given up by the attendant physican. Dr. 
Hitchcock designed a stretcher, a surgical chair and some splints, 
made two valuable changes in surgical instruments and discovered 
two medical preparations, placing them at the service of the public 
in accordance with the ethics of his profession. He also took an 
active interest in sanitaiy medicine and questions of public health. 
Dr. Hitchcock was elected to the Massachusetts legislature for several 
terms betwee-n 1847 and 1855, and he was a member of the executive 
council from 1862-64, and closely associated with Gov. John A. 
Andrew. At one time he was appointed a special agent of the state 
to superintend the care of the wounded, and visited the Southern 
battle-Helds, and in 1864 he directed the transportation of the Mas- 
sachusetts wounded. Some account of his services is given in Schou- 
ler's History of Massachusetts in the Rebellion. For a time he was 
an overseer of Harvard University. After the war Dr. Hitchcock 
retired from public life, devoting himself to his professional duties 
which became engrossing, although he found time to gratify his fine 
literary tastes, and also to take a leading part in the foundation of a 
church and in other religious and civic duties. His writings were 
never collected, but he wrote much and well throughout his life. In 
addition to various monographs and addresses he published " Chris- 
tianity and Medical Science," (Boston, 1867.) He died in Fitchburg, 
Mass., March 30, 1874."

of middle age, a considerable portion of his boyhood having been 
passed at the old Durfee homestead, No. 72, North Main street, 
with his cousin, the late Bradford M. C. Durfee. Commander 
Hitchcock was born in this very house, and with singular appropriate- 
ness he will be taken to his last resting place from the same house 
to-morrow morning. Commander Hitchcock entered the Naval 
Academy at the outbreak of the civil war, graduated in 1865 and at 
the time of his death had attained the rank of commander. He was 
in constant active service from the day of his graduation to the day 
of his death. During this period he made two cruises to China and 
the East, three to the Mediterranean, served three years in the coast 
survey, three years in the light house service, as inspector, and 
engaged in a government survey of the Isthmus of Darien for a ship 
canal. He was of the party of officers representing our government in 
1883 at the formal opening of Corea to diplomatic and commercial 
intercourse with civilized states. While on coast survey service, in 
1876, he discovered a fountain of fresh water in the ocean about ten 
miles off St. Augustine, Florida. Commander Hitchcock's energy, 
sagacity and good judgment marked him out as a man peculiarly 
fitted for delicate government duty, and in the summer of 1891 he 
was selected for service against the seal poachers in Behring Sea. 
Although suffering from a disorder growing out of illness contracted 
in the line of service, he insisted on serving this important cruise, 
and at its completion was ordered for a year's service in China to 
protect American citizens in case of an uprising. At the termina- 
tion of his cruise he returned to his home, where, after a short three 
weeks he closed his life in the midst of his family and friends. The 
funeral took place at Madison Square church on Tuesday, the escort 
consisting of a battalion of marines and sailors under Comdr. Ide."

Capt. Luke 2 Hitchcock (Luke 1 ) sou of Luke aud Elizabeth 
(Gibbons) Hitchcock of Wethersfield, Conn., was born at Wethers- 
field, June 5, 1655. After the death of his father and on the mar- 
riage of his mother to William Warriner of Springfield he removed 
to that place. He became a prominent man of Springfield, Mass., 
where he kept a tavern. He was also a shoemaker and a captain in 
the army and was made sheriff of Hampshire County, which then includ- 
ed Hampden, Franklin and Berkshire counties. The history of Suffield, 
Conn, says that he was one of the original grantees of that town, 
and in 1680 he had 50 acres of land allotted to him there. In 1717 
he was one of the rate payers in the town of Brookfield where he 
seems to have owned a good deal of land, though no mention of that 
land is made in his will. He was also one of the petitioners for a 
grant of land in Brimfield. The records of Massachusetts Bay Col- 
ony read : " May 30, 1679, in answer to the petition of Luke Hitch- 
cock the Court judgeth it meet to grant the petitioner tenne pounds 
to be payed forthwith by the county treasurer deducting the same 
from Hadley account." When under age in 1673 he chose his brother 
John to be his guardian. In 1676 he was in the fight with the Indians 
at Turner's Falls and he had a share in the township of Falltown, 
granted to the survivors of that tight. 

Hinmau says of " Sergeant Luke Hitchcock," " On the 30th of 
Nov., 1693, by vote of Springfield, Capt. Thos. Colton and Luke 
Hitchcock was sent to the Bay to procure a minister to preach the 
word of God to the town ; to apply to Mr. Increase Mather and the 
rest of the Rev'd. Elders in Boston for their help to obtain a 
minister." 

He married, Feb. 14, 1676-7, Sarah, daughter of Jonathan Burt,

She died Nov. 9, 1746, " in ye 91 year of her age." We find upon 
a Springfield gravestone, " Here rests the body of Luke Hitchcock, 
Esq., who after he had served God and his generation in several 
publick offices deceased Jan. 24, 1727, in ye 72 year of his age." 

By his will, signed May 26, 1722, and probated May 16, 1727, he 
left the use of half his house and meadow, etc., to his wife so long-

of Archbishop Gilbert Sheldon of Canterbury, England. The 
mother of Mary Sheldon was Mar}', daughter of Capt. Joseph Whit- 
ing, treasurer of Connecticut for thirty-nine years, having succeeded 
his father, William Whiting, who had held the office for thirty-seven

years and being followed by bis son who continued the treasurership 
in the family for thirty-two years more. The wife of Joseph Whit- 
ing was Mary, daughter of the Hon. John Pynchon of Springfield. 

In 1785, Ebenezer Hitchcock received from the Pynchon estate 
three hundred and seventy-nine pounds, being the rest of his wife's 
fortune from that source. 

The wife of John Pynchon of Springfield, Mass., was Amy, 
daughter of George Wyllys, the second governor of Connecticut, a 
man of wealth and a Puritan of the Puritans. In 1G38, he sent his 
steward, William Gibbons with twenty men to prepare a home for 
him and a year later took possession of the Wyllys estate in Hart- 
ford on which stood the tree to become the famous Charter Oak of a 
later generation. The sister of William Gibbons married Luke 
Hitchcock, the ancestor of Ebenezer Hitchcock, and as shown Gov. 
Wyllys was the ancestor of his wife, Mary Sheldon. 

Ebenezer Hitchcock married for his second wife, the Widow Mary 
Morgan of Brimfield, Mass., who outlived him. She died April 25, 
1785. The Rev. Gad Hitchcock records "My Hond. Father died 
Jan. 18, 1776." His will gave to his wife Mary £6 lawful money to 
be paid as soon as may be ; to Gad £3 ; to Ebenezer 5 shillings to be 
paid in four years ; to his daughter Ann wife of Jonathan Chapin, 
Mary, wife of Hezekiah Warriner and Silence, wife of Samuel Bliss, 
£10 each ; to daughter Sarah £14 ; to four children of his daughter 
Dinah Sykes deceased 50 shillings each; toAbner, Joseph and Seth

George 4 Hitchcock (Luke 3 , Luke 2 , Luke 1 ) son of Luke and 
Martha (Colton) Hitchcock, was born Nov. 12, 1728. He lived at 
Springfield ; was a cattle drover and deputy sheriff. He married, 
the bans published June 9, 1753, Hannah Johnson of Middletown, 
Conn. His will was admitted to probate Feb. 9, 1789.

Rev. Gad 4 Hitchcock, D. D., (Ebenezer 3 , Luke 2 , Luke 1 ) son of 
Capt. Ebenezer and Mary (Sheldon) Hitchcock, was born Feb. 12, 
1719, at Springfield, Mass. He was graduated at Harvard College 
in 1743. On the 29th of Februaiy, 1747 the parish of Pembroke, 
Mass. voted to settle " Mr. Gad Hitchcock in the ministry if he can 
be had." His ordination was arranged for " the first Wednesday in 
October, 1748 and Elijah dishing, Esq., to have one hundred pounds 
old tenor for providing the entertainment." Mr. dishing provided 
New England rum as was the custom and one good brother being 
brought before the church "for undue and profane words" excused 
himself on the ground that he " drank so much rum at the ordination 
of Mr. Gad Hitchcock" that he was not responsible for his words. 
The settlement was for life and on the 22nd of December, 1748, Mr. 
Hitchcock was married to Dorothy, daughter of Samuel and Dorothy 
(Avery) Angier of Cambridge. Samuel Angier was the son of the 
Rev. Samuel Angier and Hannah, only daughter of Urian Oakes, 
fourth president of Harvard College. Mather said of Oakes that he 
was " as a theologian deservedly famous, a truly charming orator, a 
learned and orthodox pastor of a church at Cambridge, a most sagac- 
ious president of Harvard college, a recipient of the highest commen- 
dations for piety, learning and eloquence." Samuel Angier's grand- 
father was Edmund Angier, who married Ruth, only daughter of 
William Ames, D. D., "of famous memory." Dr. Ames was a 
fellow of Christ College ; was driven from England for non-confor- 
mity ; was sent by the States General of Holland to the Synod of 
Dort to " aid the president of the synod by his suggestions." He 
w T as the author of the " Medulla Tkeolo°;iae " and other works and

was professor of the university of Franeker. His portrait painted 
in 1633 hangs in Memorial Hall, Cambridge. Mrs. Hitchcock's 
lineage was equally illustrious on her mother's side. Hergrandfather 
was Dr. Jonathan Avery and her grandmother, Sybil (Sparhawk) 
Avery, after the death of her young husband married the Rev. 
Michael Wigglesworth, who wrote " The Day of Doom." Their son, 
the Rev. Edward Wigglesworth was for fifty years professor of divin- 
ity at Harvard. Sybil Sparhawk's mother was Patience, daughter of 
the Rev. Samuel Newman, who led his people into the wilderness and 
founded a town which he called Rehoboth, because his flock might 
now say " The Lord has made room for us and we shall be fruitful 
in the land." He was the author of the first concordance of the 
Bible and in the words of Cotton Mather " was a very living preacher 
and a very preaching liver." 

On the 2d of November, 1749, was born to Gad and Dorothy 
Hitchcock their only child, Gad Hitchcock, the second. In Decem- 
ber, Mr. Hitchcock bought a house that is still standing and seven- 
teen acres of land. Here he passed his days and here he died full 
of years and honors. The only absence of any length was in 1758 
when as chaplain of Col. Doty's regiment he followed the fortunes 
of war and shared in its fighting and its marching. 

His services were in constant demand. In 1765 he preached the 
election sermon before that select body known as " the ancient and 
honorable artillery." In 1771, on the occasion of the ordination of 
the Rev. Enos Hitchcock at Beverly his text was I Cor. ix : 19. 

" For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto 
all that I might gain the more." In his sermon he affirmed that " a slavish 
submission to human creeds and formularies, and a trembling concern to 
make them the basis of our discourses to the people, is degrading to the 
sacred character, an aft'ront to the scriptures of truth, and a contradiction of 
the fundamental principles of protestantism." 

Once or twice he narrowly escaped being disciplined on account 
of his heretical doctrines. 

In May, 1774, he was called upon to deliver the election sermon 
in the Old South Church before the legislature and the governor, 
being the occasion of the " Election of His Majesty's Council for 
the said Province." 

The fierce excitement and spirit of resistance that preceded the 
out-break of the Revolution had reached its height. The tea had 
already gone overboard in Boston Harbor and blood was soon to flow

at Lexington. "Pembroke had been among the foremost towns in 
indignant protest and threats against the tjn'annical action of the 
royal government, and the preacher's whole heart was with his peo- 
ple " whose ideas he had helped to mould. He had chosen for his 
text, Prov. xxix : 2, "When the righteous are in authority, the 
people rejoice ; when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." 
" The very text was like a trumpet call to battle. Fresh from the 
people whose excitement and indignation he shared, he arose in the 
presence of the hushed assemblage and launched full on the bosom 
of the astonished Governor ' When the wicked beareth rule, the 
people mourn.' " 

He gave an outline of the condition of affairs in America and added " If I 
am mistaken in supposing that plans are formed, and executing subversive 
of our natural and charter rights and privileges and incompatible with every 
idea of liberty, all America is mistaken with me." He boldly defended the 
right of revolution and called on the people to be careful of their civil and 
religious liberties. 

Governor Gage was filled with great wrath on account of the bold- 
ness of this position. Dr. Hitchcock in after years said : "It was 
doubtless a most moving discourse, in as much as it moved many of 
the congregation from the house," referring to some of the govern- 
or's party who left the church in their indignation. After listening 
to the sermon, the legislature ordered it printed and then proceeded 
to elect councillors in full accord with the preacher's advice. Gov- 
ernor Gage negatived thirteen of them, and adjourned the legisla- 
ture to meet at Salem, June 17, as a punishment and as a means of 
keeping them from coming together. At Salem, he again adjourned 
them, but they locked the doors, refused the governor's messen- 
ger admission and transacted their business in spite of him. Such 
sermons had something to do with the Revolution. 

Gad Hitchcock served as chaplain, but was not commissioned. 
He was elected, July 12, 1779, a member of the convention to make 
a constitution for Massachusetts. The convention met in 1780 and 
formed the constitution under which Massachusetts was governed 
till 1820. 

In 1787 he received the degree of D. D. from Harvard College. 
He wore a wig as white as snow. He was a sociable, witty and 
cheerful man and rather improvident, which was a trial to his high 
spirited wife. He owned several slaves, some of w T hom insisted in 
remaining with him after they were free and they became a great care.

The following record remains in the hand writing of his son : " My 
honored mother died Aug. 6, 1792, after an indisposition of four

died Aug. 8, 1803, after an indisposition and confinement of four 
years. He was in the 85th year of his age and the 58th of his min- 
istry." The church voted " That the parish procure a pair of tomb-

event he was an eye-witness. He was 1st Chaplain of Col. Learned's 
regiment and was subsequently promoted to the chaplaincy of Gen. 
Patterson's brigade, retaining this position to the close of the war.

thousand dollars to the Benevolent Congregational Society, the 
interest of which is to be applied to the support of a learned and 
pious minister of the Congregational order. He died Feb. 26, 1803,

Dr. Gad 5 Hitchcock (Gad*, JEbenezer 3 , Luke 2 , Luke 1 ) son of

social rank 16 in a class of 42 ; became a member of the Mass. 
Medical society and was a surgeon's mate in 1775 in Col. John 
Thomas's regiment in the war of the Revolution. Thomas was pro- 
moted and John Bailey became colonel of the regiment. Dr. Hitch- 
cock's application for a pension shows that he served in Colonel John 
Bailey's second Mass. Regiment till December when he was trans- 
ferred to the hospital department at Roxbury and served till the last 
of May, 1776. In June he entered Col. Simeon Cary's regiment as

the pension roll March 23, 1818. 

The day after Lexington Bailey hastened with his men to the fray, 
he was in the seige of Boston, helped in the fortification of Dorches- 
ter Heights which taught Howe that Halifax was safer than Roston, 
served in the campaign around New York, did valiently in the battle 
of Long Island, lost seven men at White Plains, crossed the Dela- 
ware with Washington on that historical Christmas eve, fought at 
Princeton and then hastened north and actively assisted Burgoyne to 
surrender, then took a hand at Monmouth, was at West Point July 
31, 1780 and not far from there Sept. 26, when in his orderly books 
kept by William Torrey and still in a good state of preservation we 
read that " Treason of the blackest dye was yesterday discovered. 
General Arnold who commanded at West Point lost to every senti- 
ment of honor, of private and public obligation was about to deliver 

that important post into the hands of the enemy His 

excellency, the commander-in-chief has arrived at West Point and is 
no doubt taking the properest measures to unravel fully so Hellish a

ican freedom. Dr. Hitchcock married, July 9, 1778, Sagie Bailey, 
daughter of Col. John Bailey of Hanover, Mass. 

We quote from the records of Gad Hitchcock : " My beloved wife 
died Nov. 20, 1810 at 2 o'clock in the morning of a fever with which 
she had struggled upwards of three weeks in the 52d year of her age. 
She was born January the third in the year 1758. I was married 
July 9, 1778, consequently lived with my wife thirty-two years four 
months and eleven days. We had twelve children seven daughters 
and five sons.

My son Henry James Hitchcock died of yellow fever at New 
Orleans, Mississippi River after five days illuess, on the tenth of 
November, 1826, when he was first mate of a large brig. . . . He 
was the youngest of twelve and the first instance of mortality amongst 
them. His father now in the seventy-eighth year of his age, worn 
down by a long series of troubles and perplexities and infirmities 
of age, has the mournful duty to make this record 

Ebenezer Hitchcock died at sea on the Pacific Ocean, Jan. 8, 1829 
in the twenty eight year of his age. . . . He was second mate 
of a whale ship that sailed from New Bedford about a year before his

mon Hitchcock and his cousin Ambrose Hitchcock bought adjoining 
farms on Hanover Green. They were much attached to each other 
and the way they lived is worthy of note. Their wives (Delight and 
Olive Andrews) were sisters and they lived together as one family, 
eating from the same table for more than twenty-five years. Each 
had a separate deed for one-half the farm, and knew which was his ; 
but so far as stock, team and farming utensils were concerned they 
held them in common. Solomon Andrews 6 Hitchcock says " that he 
lived" (with the two) " from his birth until twenty-five years old, 
and cannot recall a single instance of discord or contention between 
them." After his 3d wife's death in 1827, Solomon 5 Hitchcock lived

(White) Hitchcock died at Amherst, Mass., May 26, 1863, and 
President Edward Hitchcock died there Feb. 27, 1864. 

From the biographical notice of President Edward Hitchcock read 
by J. P. Lesley, Aug. 9, 1866. attheNational Academy of Sciences, 
we quote the following : 

" Edward Hitchcock was born in 1793. His father was a small 
farmer who had learned the trade of a hatter, had fought in the Rev- 
olutionary war, and was a deacon in the Congregational church of 
Deerfield, a man of strong mind and steadfast piety, a genuine New 
England puritan. 

'' His mother was a high bred New England woman, of quick 
intelligence, pure heart and exquisite sensibility. The son was 
therefore born both to religion and science. The keys of the spirit- 
ual and of the physical worlds were hid beneath his pillow. 

Such was Edward Hitchcock, one of the fathers of American 
Geology, and one who continued to the close of a long life to be an 
original investigator. A man of ardent fancy, impulsive, curious 
and credulous ; docile and teachable beyond an}' adult man of science 
I ever knew ; modest to a marvel ; yet, with all this, a man of suf- 
ficient self-reliance and determination for the most important prac- 
tices of life, patient of difficulties, persevering and industrious 
for final success in any undertaking, sound in judgment and dis- 
ciplined in temper, a friend to all, and a friend of all, his 
whole career laid claims to eminence, which would have been 
pre-eminence in American Theology, had it not been for his 
devotion to the ecclesiastical and financial interests of the college, 
which he saved from premature decay, and refounded upon the delib- 
erate sacrifice of his own ambition." 

From the sermon delivered at the funeral of Dr. Hitchcock by 
Professor W. S. Tyler, we make the following quotations as illustra- 
ting some of the prominent features of his life : 

" Dr. Hitchcock created the materiel and the reputation of 
Amherst College in the Department of Natural History. . 

" He had naturally great physical strength and powers of endur- 
ance ; and though by overtasking his prodigious powers by more 
prodigious exertions, he early impaired his health and strength, still 
down to the last years of his life, few could climb mountains or 
break rocks with him — few could endure so much fatigue as he on a 
geological excursion. ........ 



FAMILY OF LUKE. 445 

" Quick and accurate observation of nature was, of course, the 
foundation of his scientific discoveries. He was also a sharp observ- 
er of men and things. His judgment of character, like his interpre- 
tation of natural phenomena, was quick and seldom erroneous. He 
had the originality and creative power which belong to genius. He 
was made for a discoverer, for an originator of new ideas, new 
theories, new methods, new measures. He was tall enough to see 
over the heads of other men, and catch the first dawning beams of a 
new day. He had more faith than most men, in new discoveries. 
This believing disposition sometimes welcomed a premature an- 
nouncement or a fabrication even, like the celebrated moon-hoax ; 
but it expected great things, attempted great things and achieved 
great things for science. It wrought miracles in the scientific 
world. As a Christian philosopher, he welcomed every discovery in 
Geology and the physical sciences, never doubting, that they would 
not only harmonize with, but illustate and confirm the Sacred Script- 
ures. Ichnology, as a science, began, and as yet may almost be 
said to end, with him. He was the originator of the State Scientific 
Surveys. The American Scientific Association sprang from his 
suggestion ; and he was its first president. His originality in start- 
ing new doctrines, and new arguments in Natural Theology, is seen 
in instances too numerous to mention. His mode of answering the 
objection to the Resurrection of the body, his proofs from Geology 
of the general benevolence of God, of special providence and of 
special Divine intervention in nature, and his Telegraphic System of 
the Universe, may serve as examples. He possessed in a remarka- 
ble degree that power of rapid and wide generalization, by which 
the fall of an apple suggested to Newton the law of universal gravi- 
tation. Taught by a few terraces on the hill-sides, he could recon- 
struct the Connecticut Valley at each successive geological epoch of 
its existence ; and guided by a few foot-marks in the sandstone, he 
could re-people it with its various orders and tribes of primeval 
inhabitants. If he had not been a great geologist and naturalist, he 
would have been a great astronomer and mathematician. The ques- 
tion, which he should be, turned, not on the faculties with which he 
was endowed, but on the accident, or rather the providence of his 
impaired health and eyesight. ...... 

" His labors have shed lustre on the country that gave him birth r 
and have made the Connecticut Valley a classic land, whither men of 
science from all nations must go on pilgrimage, if they would seethe

best ichnological cabinet in the world, and indeed the only one that 
deserves or claims that distinctive name. And as they visit that 
cabinet, and the other scientific collections and buildings on this con- 
secrated eminence, under the name of Edward Hitchcock, they will 
read the inscription : si monumentum quaeris, circnmspice." 

" If in the greatness and the variety of his talents and attainments, 
he was no unworthy representative of the wise man of the Scriptures, 
so was he in the consecration of all those talents and attainments to 
the highest and best ends. It was his mission to illustrate, in his 
life as well as by his tongue and his pen, the beauty and harmony of 
the connection between science and religion. He is dead ; but his 
memory lives. His influence lives and will live forever. He is gone 
from us. But his works do follow him. His character and his 
writings remain to bless the world." ..... 

The literary character of his life may be partially judged of by a 
simple enumeration of the number of articles, pamphlets, and vol- 
umes written by him between the years 181 5 and 1863. These were : 
24 distinct volumes, 35 separate pamphlets and sermons, 80 news- 
paper articles, and ( J4 papers in the magazines of the day.

graduated from Amherst College and Andover Theol. 
Seminary; ordained at Lawrence, Mass., and installed 
pastor; as subsequently at Cincinnati, O., Brooklyn, N. 
Y., and Orange, N. J. From 1872 to 1882 he was Cor. 
Sec. of the American Home Missionary Society, with

widow of John Ingland of England, who had died Nov. 30, 1655,

of Edward which occurred probably in the latter part of 1057, his 
widow married, Sept., 1663, Thomas Johnson, by whom she had one 
son Thomas, b. July 11, 1664. Edward was in New Haven in 1643, 
when he was bapt. by the Rev. John Davenport in right of his wife, 
Dec. 15, 1644." He in company with Luke. Hitchcock took the free- 
man's oath July 1, 1644. 

From the records of the colony and plantation of New Haven from 
1638 to 1649 : k ' Edward Hitchcock fined for want of Mini, Jan. 4, 
1643." " Nov. 2, 1642, Ct., ordered that Matthew Hitchcock shall 
either pay 20 s. to Mr. Perry, which he undertooke in the behalf of 
his brother, or else sell so much of his brother's goods as will satisfie 
the said debt."

Hitchcock deceased, taken Nov. 23, 1658, attested by the widow 
Frances. Deacon Miles and John Cooper took oath that the inven-

tory was just, etc. The widow says that something tending to the 
nature of a will was expressed to Matthias Hitchcock and Edward 
Patterson a little before his death." 

" Ct. held April 5, 1659. Frances, widow of Edward Hitchcock, 
with Matthias Hitchcock and Edward Patterson, testify that Edward 
Hitchcock when sick, said he intended to give his wife's kinswoman 
Elizabeth Perry, a childs part. Ct. so ordered." 

" Ct. held May 3, 1859. John and Samuel, sons of Edward H — 
deceased, propounded for libert}' to choose their guardian. John, 
the eldest, nominated Samuel Andrews, but the Court advised him to 
take advise of Deacon Miles and of Ensign Linden and of any other 
of his friends in this matter. Samuel was thought not to be at age, 
therefore the case concerning both of them was respited until another 
time." 

" Ct. held May 11, 1659. On testimony of Frances, widow of 
Edward Hitchcock, as to change in estate, a new inventory was taken, 
amount £185-l0s-9d. Deacon Miles appraiser, testified as to cor- 
rectness etc. Property divided among the widow, Frances, John, 
the eldest son, whose share was by his consent committed to Ensign 
Lindon ; Mary, eldest dan., Abigail, whose share was at her desire 
entrusted to Sergeant Munson ; Samuel was not of age to choose 
a guardian, and his share remains under the care of the Court: and 
Elizabeth Perry, a Kinswoman of the widow." 

Oct. 4, 1659 (See Day Book 3). 

" Ct. held Feb. 7, 1659. John Thompson Jr., called to show by 
what right he held Samuel Hitchcock as his servant. John Thomp- 
son confessed he had no indenture but affirmed an agreement between 
his father and himself that Samuel Hitchcock should serve him seven 
years as an apprentice, and that he was to teach him to read and 
write and Arithmetic & he was to go to sea & he to learn him to do 
his labor at sea, & when he had been with him three years he was to 
have liberty of a barrel of freight without charge, which agreement 
(he sd) was witnessed by Mr? Bower and wife. Mr. Bower testified 
that at three years ago Edward Hitchcock and John Thompson came 
to his house and desired him to hear terms of an agreement which he 
could not remember distinctly but etc — He adds practical part of 
navigation to be taught — serve three or four years & then receive 
freight to amount of a barrel in all voyages, E. Hitchcock 40s to put 
him in clothes & his master to keep him in cloths all the time. 



APPENDIX. 481 

Samuel Hitchcock said that his father when sick said he was glad he 
had so good a place & that if he died he was to stay seven years. 
Court said the relation was imperfect and asked after John Thomp- 
sons part, who said Samuel Hitchcock could read pretty well & was 
learning to write but denied that he promised to teach the art of 
Navigation but ouly to do his labor at sea & to coast & rig a vessel. 
Mr. Bower could not remember. The Court declared there was no 
writing & no agreement proved, but that he must expect that he 
being upon a voyage to England, the Court be satisfied that the 
conditions were in a probable way to be fulfilled concerning which 
he is to give account at the next court." (The last sentence is very 
difficult to decipher. ) 

" Ct. held March 6, 1659. (same case) Edward Pattisons testi- 
mony given. Court thinks there might be such an agreement & asks 
John Thompson how he intends to improve the remaining four 3'ears 
according to agreement — inasmuch as he himself was bound for 
England. John Thompson replied that he intended to take Samuel 

H with him, Court said that it would not be allowed on another 

man's ship. Court ordered that John Thompson should retain Sam- 
uel Hitchcock until this time twelve month for help of his wife in his 
absence provided the terms &c are carried out."
